Brykley Park Garden Centre Demo

I just wanted to let everyone know that I will  be demoing on Sunday the 27th at Brykley Park Garden Centre, Rangemoor, Burton On Trent.  I will be there from 10 am to 4pm showing some fun techniques with embossing folders, masks, spellbinder dies, mica powders and other products that I love playing with and using.  I would love for you to drop by and say hello if you are in the area!
   Here is another sample from last weeks shows that I really liked (and the picture came out okay too!)  The flowers were made from an out of date dictionary I purchased for 25 cents in Florida while thrift store shopping with my daughter in November.  I knew it would make great card embellishments and background paper!  And guess what, there is my favourite vintage ribbon on there too!  That stuff is so much fun to play with and use on cards.  If you are coming to Ally Pally in April, I will have it at my booth and a really lovely assortment of colours too.
Hope I get to see some of you at the demo this weekend!  All for now, Sue x

Lisa aka Myran said...

This is so beautiful Sue!
Love the colors and the pretty flowers you made :)

Claire said...

Stunning.

I wish C&C would allow you two hours with stamps,techniques, papers, etc so that we can see how you decide on your cards/colours/designs as well as all the brilliant techniques.

You would make a fabulous guest/host for the Paper Clinic.

Stunning card, love the flowers, I'm off to my local charity shop this afternoon to bag myself a dictionary.... too far for me to come to your demo tomorrow but I hope to be at Ally Pally this year, 1st year for me...

Josie said...

Lovely card, I wish I could see your demos in person as well.

Buttons said...

Sue, just wanted to say a huge thank you for the wonderfully inspiring demos you gave at the garden centre today. I felt thoroughly priviliged to watch you work, answer our questions, and give us your own tips and techniques. You really gave so much of yourself and deserve a very long lie down (if time allows I guess?!) Being able to look up close at your samples was also such a treat. I look forward to seeing you on C&C (cross fingers it's with 'Mr Gorgeous'!) with all the lovely treats you are working hard to line up for us. Again, thank you Sue.

Christine said...

Sue, would like to say a big thankyou for your inspiring demo's and gorgeous cards you had on display at Byrkley Garden Centre today.
It was a real pleasure to sit and watch you so close, love your work and you are happy to share your tips and techniques with everyone.
I do hope you will be persuaded to do another demonstration very soon.
Thanks for the help in choosing my ECO Paint colours of Gold & Mushroom.
Your samples are so gorgeous especially when seen in real life and thanks for allowing us to take pictures of them.
Thank you again foe giving up your 'free time'
Hugs Christine xx

Andrea said...

Just wanted to say a huge thank you for the demonstration yesterday at Byrkley. Mum and I had a great time seeing all of your techniques in real life. It was good to see the cards too in detail and for the chance to photograph them. Looking forward to seeing all the *new* items you're going to be bringing to us soon.

I shall watch C&C with great interest now!!
